Asparagus Bites: Quick 3 Ingredient Appetizer

“What are ya doin’ New Year’s, New Year’s Eve?”

Do you know this song?  That’s the only part I know, and I remember my dad singing it almost every year, about this time, as we discussed our plans for New Year’s Eve.  At this point, I don’t have any plans, and that’s OK with me.  If something comes up, great, but if not, I’ll probably be in bed at my usual 9:30 bedtime, reading a good book, enjoying the peace and quiet.  For those of you who have a party to attend, this is one of the easiest appetizers to make!  With just three ingredients, you can put it together in about 20 minutes, and everyone will love it.  {My 2 year old devoured these!}

Asparagus Bites
16 oz. packaged deli ham {the rectangular kind works best}
8 oz. cream cheese {not cream cheese spread}
can of asparagus {you could try fresh asparagus too}
In a microwaveable bowl, soften the cream cheese so that it is easy to spread.  Lay ham out on a clean work space.  Spread with a layer of cream cheese. Place one asparagus spear on one end of the ham and roll up.  Refrigerate for 1-2 hours, until cream cheese hardens again.  Place rolled up ham slices on cutting board, and slice with a serrated knife into bite size pieces.  Arrange on platter and serve chilled.

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
